Emerson-Hubbard graduate plans to keep feedlot in the family

“Lazy” isn't in Josh Sebade's vocabulary.

Sebade graduated from Emerson-Hubbard High School last weekend as Valedictorian of his class of 19 students after participating in football, track, FFA, student council and E-H Club for Letterwinners.

It goes without saying that he found success in high school, but he admitted to being a bit nervous to begin an unfamiliar chapter at college in the fall.

However, Sebade is confident that he'll adapt and find his way while studying agricultural engineering at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

“I'm ready for a new stage of life and to keep going toward something I want to do,” he said.

Currently, Sebade works with cattle on his family's Emerson feedlot, and after college graduation, he plans to make his way back and run the feedlot with his brother Jacob.

“I've always been fond of working there,” he said.

Josh will tend to the cattle while Jacob, who has a business background, will run the numbers. The brothers also have a sister Justine, and they are the children of Brent and Brenda Sebade.

He said the average day at the feedlot varies with the season, but checking to make sure the cattle are healthy, fixing fences and feeding the cattle are pretty much constants.

The feedlot has been in the family for decades as his grandfather bought it many years ago, Sebade said.
